Oregon Congressman Rep. Earl Blumenauer is living in an alternate reality. He claims that President Trump has invaded the city to protect statues and that the city is not on fire.

Oh really? The videos below would say otherwise, congressman.
While you were asleep
In Portland, Feds once again fended off rioters as they tried lighting the Courthouse on fire, vandalized fed buildings, killed a tree, hurled water bottles & projectiles.

Oregon Governor Kate Brown is also blaming President Trump for the violence that has occurred in the city for over 50 days. Don’t you love it how liberals blame their failures on President Trump.

Here are the extremists trying to get inside the courthouse.
Rioters were successful in tearing off part of the protective barrier of the Portland federal courthouse. They then try to shatter the glass so that they can start a fire inside. They had some success doing that two weeks ago. Video by @NancyRomm. #antifa pic.twitter.com/KpcNi7mp0S

DHS on Tuesday released a timeline over what occurred:
DHS sent out a timeline for the protest/riot in Portland from Mon. (20) to Tues. (21): Peaceful protesters left around 11:00 pm. Rioters then attacked the Hatfield Federal Courthouse. Feds responded with pepper balls and tear gas. Seven arrests were made. pic.twitter.com/xjDrgeFZUg

Like Rep. Earl Blumenauer said there’s nothing going on the city of Portland is fine.
